Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela says that “a win is a win” as Kaizer Chiefs edged Mpumalanga Black Aces in a
Absa Premiership encounter.
Chiefs beat Aces for
the second time in three days as a first-half header by Camaldine Abraw gave
Amakhosi a 1-0 win.
KickOff, Komphela said the hard fought victory should be a source of inspiration.
“A win is a win and we look at it as inspiration," said the Amakhosi coach.
“There are areas we know we could have done better and you
go there [to address the players] and say this should have been done this way,
but what is more important is that when you look at the log there are three
more points for us.
“That’s more important, even though you don’t want to
condone a win that is ‘naked’.”
The Glamour Boys dominated
possession early in the game but did not create any clear-cut scoring
opportunities that tested the Aces defence.
interplay was finally rewarded when Abraw headed in George Lebese
cross to put the Amakhosi ahead just after the half hour mark.
Aces were much
better in the second period and gave Itumeleng Khune in the Chiefs goal some
nervy moments but the home team hung on to claim the victory.
